    Barack Obama continues his media blitz with unusual presidential appearances on most all of the major Sunday talk shows to ratchet up his health care reform push.

    The president be will interviewed on ABC’s “This Week,” CNN’s “State of the Union,” NBC’s “Meet the Press,” CBS’s “Face the Nation” and on Univision.

    NBC also hosts House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) to discuss health care, the economy and the administration's strategy in Afghanistan. Other guests include POLITICO’s chief political columnist, Roger Simon, and Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson.

    ABC also features a roundtable discussion with Democratic strategist Donna Brazile, former George W. Bush adviser Ed Gillespie, former Clinton Labor Secretary Robert Reich and The Wall Street Journal’s Peggy Noonan.

    Sens. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Carl Levin (D-Mich.) also appear on CNN to discuss health care, homeland security and the economy.

    Finally, Bloomberg’s “Political Capital” features Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) to talk about health care and financial regulation.
